Hi this is Joel R., I let my friend use my PayPal account to order something and then I went to order something and it automatically charged his credit card. I need to have Melvin F.’s billing info removed from my PayPal so I am not using his credit card when I am ordering things. I am not sure how to do this my self thanks.
Dear Joel, thanks for the question.
First of all, you will need to check if the card has been saved in your account. PayPal now allows non-registered users to make payments using their cards without signing up. If they want to save the card and if they want to receive money, they would need to sign up and the procedure for this is very easy.
To check if a card has been saved, login to your PayPal account and click on “My Account”. Under this, hover the mouse cursor on “Profile”and select Link/Edit Credit Card. This will display all the cards linked to your account. So, if your friend’s card is listed there, simply click on “Remove” in the “Action” column, for that particular card. You will be asked to confirm your action, click on “Remove”.
For the fact that his card was charged, it has probably been automatically added to your account, because a PayPal account is meant for personal use and one is only supposed to use cards they own.
In closing, I would like to suggest you to use PayPal for yourself and not let anyone use it for their transactions. It is just like a bank account; would you allow anyone to use your online banking account after you have logged in to it? The same should be true for PayPal as well.

We know that PayPal has many products and solutions but did we know that third parties use their platform to offer their own solutions? Send Moola does exactly that; they present another way to send money and get paid on any Android device. The payments are done on PayPal’s platform, but the application is their own and the solution is offered by them.
Anyone can send money using their PayPal balance or a payment card, just like they do with PayPal. Money can be sent to anyone with a PayPal email address or to anyone as an attachment with e-greeting cards. Anything from paying the Pizza man, paying for flowers and paying businesses is possible with Send Moola through their widgets dedicated for each such service.
Sending money is a 5 step process, which is also true for receiving money and for business services. The first step is to choose an image based on the occasion or upload a custom image; the second step involves selection of the service; available services are sending, receiving and accepting cash (for businesses). We are concerned with sending and raising money, so we first choose “Send Money”.
The third step is the creation of a custom widget for sending payment, entering the amount which cannot exceed $1000 per transfer and entering the sender’s and receiver’s PayPal email addresses. The next step is confirming the e-card and the amount, after which a license has to be purchased, which costs 1% plus PayPal fees for 1 year or 2% plus PayPal fees for 6 months (10 widgets/uses allowed) and 3% plus PayPal fee for only 1 widget.
For raising money, similar steps are to be followed, except that the amount need not be entered. The fee for this is $5 for 6 months (only 1 widget) and $7 for 1 year. About accepting payments, I will write elsewhere. The service is good and brings families together but it is quite expensive as it adds PayPal fees along with its own; otherwise, the service is quite interesting.
